During the much talked about interview with Times Now Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, Rahul Gandhi was asked about his Cambridge degree.

Goswami raised the issue of Subramanian Swamy taking a dig at Rahul's M Phil degree from Cambridge University saying that the 'degree was a lie.'

Rahul in response to this said: "You want me to show you my degree, I can show you my degree. He has probably seen my degree, I have given a sworn affidavit saying that I have got these degrees."

Here is a new revelation about Rahul Gandhi's degree at Cambridge.

An article published in the Telegraph on Feb 19 says:

"Rahul Gandhi took the name 'Rahul Vinci' when he studied for a year at Trinity College, Cambridge, from 1994-95...University sources pointed out that the 'Red Book', which contains the names of Cambridge University members, lists him as: 'VINCI, Rahul T MPHIL95.' The “T” stands for his college, Trinity, where both his great grandfather, Jawaharlal Nehru, and father, Rajiv Gandhi, were undergraduates."

The Telegraph, on Feb 17, published a story about PM Manmohan Singh's affinity for, well not exactly tea, but tea sets.

"Singh has been quietly building a collection of teacups, saucers and pots that he received as gifts from abroad and can be taken with him once he leaves 7 Race Course Road this May...Singh, known for his frugal lifestyle, has despatched to the government 38 of the 44 gifts he had received from heads of state and government, ambassadors and other foreign visitors since July last year...All the six gifts Singh has taken home are tea sets."
